  • What's your favorite Charles Mudede post?: That one with the picture of a building with incomprehensible Marxist allusions
Call me Scott is considering a more just society: If a law results in power, privilege or authority accruing to the already advantaged, should it be considered an unjust law?
Apr 13 Call me Scott commented on Mayor Murray and Seattle Lawmaker at Odds Over Police Body Cam Transparency Bill.
Good rewrite. Thank you . . . from the dumb club.
Apr 13 Call me Scott commented on Bill Maher: Extremists Don't Hijack Religions. Moderates Do..
I've heard several Bill Maher bits that start out as one thing and end as Islam-bashing. Icky.
Apr 13 Call me Scott commented on Mayor Murray Lobbies Olympia Against Police Body Camera Transparency.
4 times for me and the double (triple?) negative keeps tripping me up.
Apr 11 Call me Scott commented on Why I Gave Up Booze in Favor of Weed.
A good read.
Apr 8 Call me Scott commented on Guest Editorial: Allow Non-Citizens to Vote in Seattle Elections.
Changing one's constitution precedes durable improvement. Improvement requires change. This is where youth triumphs over age--willingness to change. Yeah, I supported Jess Spear.
Apr 7 Call me Scott commented on South Carolina: Cop Shoots Unarmed Black Man In the Back.
The gun is the problem. Guns kill people . . . no doubt about it.
Apr 7 Call me Scott commented on The Morning News: Seattle Home Prices Shoot Up by Nearly 20 Percent, Senate Republicans Refuse to Raise Taxes.
Is the NTSB limited to crying "danger!"? Can they not declare oil trains as unacceptably hazardous and stop or limit their operation until safety upgrades are implemented? What authority does the NTSB have?
Mar 24 Call me Scott commented on Seattle Has the Fastest-Growing Rich in the US.
Working hard and not getting ahead is getting old. And listening to well-meaning (self-serving) Nick Hanauer talk about a 45% top tax-bracket is nauseating. The top federal rate in the year of my birth--1964--was 77%. You're about 1/2 way there, Nick. 90% on every dollar 'earned' over 500,000 / year--which includes all sources of income--sounds about right, if you want any substantive progress reducing income inequality.
Mar 23 Call me Scott commented on Leaked Audio: Port Commissioner Bill Bryant Mocks Seattleites and Reveals More About Arctic Drilling Rig Deal.
I thought this was a great article. And I think that Commissioner plays it fast and loose--doesn't have a grasp on detail and is murky on stuff like facts, relationships, consequences, et. al.
